Dell Technologies and Snowflake are teaming up for a joint solution that connects data from on-premises storage to the Snowflake Data Cloud.
The collaboration aims to increase the accessibility of data stored on Dell infrastructure. Snowflake Data Cloud is a platform that brings together data from various cloud services, SaaS applications and on-premises infrastructure into a single environment. This eliminates the need for separate data warehouses and data lakes when sharing data across organizations.
On-premises object storage
The collaboration focuses mainly on data housed in on-premises object storage arrays. The data can be added to the data platform while remaining local, which meets various compliance and governance requirements. Ultimately, it should provide businesses with more flexible options for their data in multi-cloud environments.
The combined solution should be ready in the second half of this year. Several joint product integrations will be released as well.
